Brooklyn Museum - VIRTUAL Exhibition - Captioned on Zoom

07/08/2021 1:00 pm



Celebrate the exhibition Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And during its closing weeks with the art historians featured in the exhibition catalogue, and explore four decades of Lorraine O’Grady’s interventions in race, subjectivity, and art and its politics. Scholars Harry Burke, Malik Gaines, Catherine Lord, Stephanie Sparling Williams, and Zoé Whitley engage with significant works in the artist’s oeuvre—from her culture-shaking performance persona Mlle Bourgeoise Noire to Announcement of a New Persona (Performances To Come!), which debuted as part of this retrospective—and meditate on her many legacies in visual culture today. 

This program is free, but please RSVP; a Zoom link will be sent by email upon confirmation. Purchase a copy of Lorraine O’Grady: Both/And in our Shop.
